Changelog for Patch (15 July 2016)

The last big update before FINAL RELEASE!

Exploration points
- You will no longer receive a region point only when discovering all locations within a region. Instead, you will receive an exploration point (same function, just different name) for every three uncovered locations, independend from in which region you have found them.
- We removed the preview of the locations that can be found in your current region, as we didn't find a visual representation that we were happy with and that justified the visual clutter and redundancy. The info box of the region now states the number of locations in the region.
- The 'Geography' perk is now exclusive to scouts (can't be chosen as medal for the explorer) and was reworked to 'far' reveal all available locations when entering a region.

Sanity events
- Added lots of new zero-sanity events, resting events and phobias.
- Tuned probablity of all already existing events, evening out their appearance out a bit.
- Anger events are not triggered as part of regular resting events anymore, but run on their own timer now and can interrupt your regular traveling.
- The sanity bar info box now shows additional info about what kind resting events to expect.
- The sanity bar starts to blink when on zero sanity
- When hitting zero sanity there is a random amount of days that the player can still move before being interrupted by a catastropic event. That delay was in the range of 5-10 days. It has been reduced to 0-5 days. Events after the first catastropic will still trigger 5-10 days later.

- We've finally added the long awaited image of the statue that shows the best explorer in the world.
- Instead of showing all of the epilogue texts at once, you can now click through them in sequence. You can go back to previous entries by clicking on the small rectangles.

- You will now be able to trade certain items at the mysterious altars. In order to receive special items, you will have to find the patterns of objects that need to be sacrificed
- We plan to extend the altar even further after the 1.0 release.

Camp Site
- It is now possible to pack up a camp again, which will remove the camp from the map and add the item back into your inventory
- It is no longer possible to stash items in a camp
- The value of the camp item has been increased

- Improved event image of shrine interior
- Improved event image of elephant graveyard
- Improved image of giant scorpion enemy
- Added new image for fire sprawl death
- Animated gentleman background scene with a flickering fire effect

- You can now switch off the custom mouse cursors in the main menu in case your recording software is having trouble displaying it
- Item usage of machete, rope and climbing gear is now shown directly on your travel path
- In case that there are too many characters in your trek to fit on the screen, a tab switch button appears that allows to change between visible characters.

- Added icon for family amulet item
- Tomepages can now be used without a range limitation
- Made infections deadlier and less random in duration
- Added final steps to tutorial - it should explain all the basic things now to get going if you have never played the game before
- You can now tell the current difficulty level from looking at the HUD background elements. Also it is now stated in the info box of the day counter.
- Added a few new secret explorers
- Hard mode: Added a sanity boost when reaching the pyramid
- Increased the minumum travel speed for party
- Added support for funds to the notification system
- The missing wife that can be found in the first expedition does not use up unit slots anymore

- Fixed certain volcano aftermath was not always triggered
- Fixed missing combat slots in cave event image
- Fixed chasm borders from overlapping on map background
- Fixed treasure map tiles not having proper tile borders

"Improved italian translation".................................

For the first time i decided to try the italian translation of the game, because usually i play in english.
It's so atrocious that my eyes were bleeding.
I know that it's not a pro job, but i think that it's realized by someone that doesn't know the english language and maybe he should come back to school to study again even the italian language.

Changelog for Patch 1.3.1 (added 12 January 2018):

Modding improvements
- Added support for requirements for perks in the celebration screen. Possible use cases: only offering some perks for some explorers, having some perks as prequisite for other perks (e.g. level 1, level 2, level 3 perks), offering perks depending on visited terrain types, having a curse disallows choosing a new perk for one expedition, etc..
- Added support for adding custom character buttons (in the same style as the promote or mount button). They can have their own requirements and can trigger a custom event when clicked. A new example mod slapFace showing how to use this can be found on our githug page
- Added a new log viewer which is more stream lined than the previous version (more work to be done here). There is a new "Show Log" button on the modding screen to open it and also on the in-game debug bar. Also game events should now be contributed to the correct mod making it easier to debug things.
- Fixed modding feature check only accounted for the first new entity type instead of counting all of them
- Fixed mod version parsing was not working when the number was not written in quotes. Also reduced the amount of numbers designating the version to just two (A.B) instead of (A.B.C.D).
- Fixed parsing mods without imgData breaking game graphics
- Fixed importing files which had a single entry instead of a array
- Fixed invalid character references crashing the game (should just be ignored now)
- If mod does not designate a defaultLang property, 'English' is assumed
- Added support for triggering chat lines from the entity search bar
- Added support for gender-specific grammar in chat lines
- Removed mod ID from info screen (not relevant to most users)
- Made sure that delayedEvent is in the game scripts for events that may interrupt player movement. Events being triggered via delayedEvent show a diary alert first instead of opening up the diary right away. This mode should be used for any text events that are triggered during tripEvents or dayEvents. Maybe we'll come up with a way to detect this automatically, but this isn't trivial, so for now this has be designated manually.
- Marked sp-ee-base as abstract so they can't be spawned directly into the game
- Fixed color slots not being recognized correctly
- Restricted shown mod name lengths on mod select buttons
- Renamed blocksHealthRegen to blockHealthRegen for consistency
- Added blockLevelUp property for temporarily blocking promoting characters via a status
